Centre update 9: guide for adapting Speech assessments – 8th of June, 2020

COVID-19 restrictions have led to the cancellation of exams and prevented many assessments from being taken as planned this spring and summer.

Ofqual has designed an approach to ensure, as far as possible, that learners receive results to enable them to progress to the next stage of their lives without further disruption.

Following consultation, Ofqual has published guidance on its Extraordinary Regulated Framework, which allows ESB International to adapt its Speech assessments for some Speech qualifications.

This means that ESB International centres can book their adapted Speech assessments from Monday, 15th June.

ESB International has produced detailed centre guidance and further supporting documentation for teachers and learners to support those who are planning to adapt Speech assessments.

There are two separate folders to download, depending on which qualifications you are planning to adapt:
